In recognition of the forthcoming centennial of Bill Monroe’s birth, Bluegrass Today will be posting a daily record of events through the decades that are associated with the ‘Father of Bluegrass’ music and those who were close to him.
Beginning on Friday (10/1) and continuing through to the end of September 2011, we will, each day, celebrate the life of Bill Monroe by sharing information about him and those people who are associated with his life and music career. This information includes births and deaths; recording sessions; single, LP and CD release dates; and other interesting tidbits.
A lot of the information has long been in the public domain; additional data has been identified in the course of personal research over 35 years.
I’m Going back to Old Kentucky is a work in progress and we welcome input from our readers.
